Okay, so in the actual games, he can use it to inflate enemies and then fling them at other enemies. In Crusade, he lifts them above his head and flings them forward, but it doesn't seem to have an actual use. It does no damage, no effect or windbox or anything, you can't position it or throw them downwards or something, so frankly I'm lost. You can fling someone over the edge but they can jump and recover after being thrown, basically making it Dedede's inhale but with the fact that it doesn't even do damage.
Can anyone fill me in on this?
